Re: which prop is better

I switched to a 4 blade set in the spring of '19. Felt that there was significant improvement in performance and gas usage. I have a floscan system which gives me an accurate accounting of gas usage.

Re: Gas fillup, dilemma over

Sometimes it becomes unfathomable as to the reasoning offered by marinas as to the logic of charging exorbitant prices for non-ethanol gas. I once asked the previous marina operator as to why the high price? Three reasons: 1. They have a short season (not yearlong) to sell, 2. They really didn't wan...

Re: Gas fillup, dilemma over

The price difference is THE reason I would self fuel our boat. Marinas notoriously overpriced their non-ethanol fuel. Case in point here in Cincinnati area the cost of non-ethanol gas was 3.65/gal up to 4.25/gal. A local gas company (Casey's) charged 2.89/gal for non-ethanol guel. So you're talking ...

Re: blower vent hose

Just a thought... (yeah,I know, something I shouldn't do.. :D ) An aluminum dryer vent hose (both in 3" and 4" sizes) is available. Being flexible by nature, would these not work as well as the plastic ones, AND last much longer? Pliable enough to be closed up around the blower's ends usin...

Re: New member with questions, Sedan 32

Afternoon Ed, Welcome to the forum.... :D Couple of things... - it was mentioned that a BigM can be a little problematic in a crosswind, that's true no matter where you are. I boat on the Ohio River southwest of Cincinnati, Oh. Our boats are much lighter than a glass boat which is fantastic when it ...

What has been your process for cleaning boat bottom?

All, There's a thread that piqued my interest in creating this thread ("Bare Bottom"). In one of the last posted threads FastJeff detailed how he had left his (previous) boat sit for some time and he found it necessary to anchor in shallow water and spend some time (hour + ?) scraping the ...

Re: Bare Bottom?

Jeff,

I'm guessing your anchorage to clean/scrape the bottom was in fairly stable conditions (no / minimal muck).

Starting a new thread on bottom cleaning processes used by members.

Re: My 29 on the Market

Dave, Sorry to hear that you're finding it advisable to sell your boat. I hope she finds a new owner who will appreciate her the way you have shown here on the forum. It would seem the ravages of time is something we all face... ... except our boats!!! With reasonable care they stand up to time to a...
